luck of the draw sometimes! have always had terrific service and experiences at Grill 23, but not this time. service was atrocious! also appears that the wine list has changed and may be the most expensive wine list in the city. I have been to dozens of private dinners and have frequented Grill 23 for a long time as an fyi.

We had a great family birthday dinner for my 29 year old daughter. As usual, Grill 23 delivered. The men had steak, and the women caviar and salmon. All was exceptional. We had the sommelier select our wine based on a style description and a not to exceed price point. The wine was very good.

I travel a lot for work and eat at many, many fine dining restaurants. Grill 23 hit it out of the park this visit. Not my first trip there, as it is always good, but this visit was exceptional. I was at a table for four and three of us each ordered the aged ribeye. All of us said it was probably the best steak we have ever eaten anywhere, anyplace, any time. The service was exceptional as well. We could not have had a better dining experience. Congratulations to Grill 23 on perfect execution!

Delicious food, great wine. Unfortunately, the service was not great, and what sticks in my mind was that our server made a mistake on our two individual checks. I pointed out the mistake and he said he understood, but then he made the mistake in the other direction and still got it wrong. It was loud and busy - not worth trying to fix.

First table was next to a very loud group of men using profanity laced language. We asked for a different table and were moved upstairs.
My salmon was very over cooked. My friend had clam chowder that was not very good.
Overall, disappointing.

Grill 23 & Bar was astounding. The 100 day aged ribery is one of the best I've ever had. Every server was attentive and professional. The drinks were delicious as well and the wine list is extensive. Wonderful experience and will always make it a point to come back here when in town. The one downside for me was they do not have a dress code and someone sat next to us in shorts and a washed denim jacket with pins in it. It killed a little bit of the mood for me but did not ruin the evening at all. We will be back!

This is a five star restaurant -- first class in all respects. We were treated like royalty the entire evening. The wait staff was amazing especially William who was in charge of our table that night. We started with wedge salads and for entrees both went with beef dishes. For sides we did get a vegetable and potato to share. So much food. Loved the flatbread that was in the bread basket. We were celebrating a special occasion and William told us that the dessert and coffees were on them. We never expected that! The dessert was served with a "Congratulations" chocolate. We had a wonderful time and hope to return again in the future.

My girlfriend and I went here for our anniversary and we had a fantastic experience. The waitress we had was lovely and food was excellent. I got the 100 day age ribeye and that was tasted like no steak I had before...it was perfectly cooked and juicy. My girlfriend got the Boston dine out deal n upgraded to the prime New York and she loved it as well. The waitress brought out two glasses of champagne on the house because it was our anniversary and then at the end of dinner, she again brought out a free small dessert! So kind! The service was excellent!

Lovely atmosphere and wonderful food.

I told them my reservation was for a birthday and the birthday boy loved creme brûlée. To my surprise, they had creme brûlée served after our meal. It was such a cool experience.

The only minor complaint is that some of the hosts were wearing casual shirts and tennis shoes that kind of killed the atmosphere. I’d say that doesn’t even matter much comparatively.
